Who Is The Dallas Sierra Club and Why We Matter...
There is so much beauty in North Texas. From the people to the places they inhabit, there are rich cultures and communities; vast spaces and urban centers; and blends of histories and cultures. The Dallas Sierra Club is proud to support and assist all our communities and to help them to protect their individualism while also creating an environment free of industrial pollution, impure air, and contaminated soil. We also believe that the best way to honor the environment is to get out in it! The Dallas Sierra Club does this by hosting local and out of town hikes, explorations of wild spaces, and urban outreach to engage those who may not have equal opportunities to surround themselves with green.
